Meet local hero Zane Powles from Grimsby. He delivers free school lunches to his students every single day
Zane walks 5 miles each day and carries 40 pounds of food with him. He also checks to see if the students are doing alright
The teacher’s selfless act quickly caught everyone’s attention
Zane places the packed lunches on the students’ doorsteps, knocks on the door, and then waits nearby until someone picks up the food.
According to Zane, he felt humbled by the responses to his food deliveries and also revealed that a lot of the students’ parents were happy to have some form of “adult contact” when he arrives.
The teacher goes into detail about what he does in this video. Have a look
Zane stayed humble even after being at the center of attention
“The parents and children come to the window or the door to wave and say hello, some of the parents want to have a little chat—I think I’m the only adult contact they get to talk to some days,” he told the Independent.
“I’m usually quite a private person, so all the attention is kind of embarrassing, but we’re all just doing our job—the welfare of our students is our top priority and we’re just doing the best we can.”
Here’s another video that shows how he goes about his day
